A QUARTER of all flights cancelled by Ryanair will affect a Spanish airport.
It comes after the budget airline published a definitive list of flights it has been forced to cancel due to bad planning of its pilots’ holidays.
A whopping 2,176 flights have been axed between September 16 and October 28, around 50 flights per day.
Some 564 flights leaving or landing in Spain will be cancelled, 25.9% of the total number of axed flights.
Among Spanish airports, the worst affected is Barcelona-El Prat, which will lose 302 flights to European cities such as Rome, London, Porto and Birmingham.
Meanwhile, Adolfo Suárez-Madrid Barajas will lose 196 flights to destinations such as London, Santiago de Compostela, Berlin, Dublin and Porto.
Other Spanish airports affected include Ibiza, Palma, Castellón, Alicante and Santiago de Compostela.
Stockbrokers have put compensation figure as high as €34.5 million.
The ‘mess up’ is expected to cost them at least €25 million in passenger compensation alone.
Goodbody Stockbrokers say it could reach as much as €34.5 million, with €23.5 due in compensation to passengers, €6.3 million in airport taxes, and €4.7 million in covering food, drink and hotel stays for those who have been left stranded by the cancellations
It also estimates Ryanair could lose as much as 2.3% of the nearly €1.5 billion of profits for this year (€34.5 million).
